Airport Central Community Zone
The location for Airport Central Station was established directly south of the Perth Airport control tower near terminals 1 and 2.
Considerable progress is continuing on structures of height. This includes the elevated entry to the Skybridge, which will provide passengers with an undercover connection between the train station and terminals. Learn more about the Skybridge here.
The station’s triple escalator system, which is 35m long and 15m high, has now been installed. The escalator will connect the Skybridge to the concourse level. Once operational, it will take 55 seconds to travel from top to bottom and a total of 8200 passengers can be transported per hour. It is the longest single-span uninterrupted escalator in the Southern Hemisphere. View footage of the escalator installation here.
Works are ongoing on the station platform located at base level. The 150m-long central platform is being backfilled with 1800 cubic metres of sand before compaction works and the installation of services. Once complete, concrete pours for the platform slab will occur.
